Dear readers, when the voices in your head say, “Look, people don’t care enough to do what you are dreaming. And even if they did care enough, they aren’t willing to do the hard work to change”, the temptation to quit becomes exceedingly appealing.
Right now, it would be sooo much easier to pop a top and enjoy an ice cold beer.
Who am I to think society is even remotely interested in changing, let alone seriously interested? Is it crazy to care about personal responsibility? To believe that if we could teach personal responsibility at a much earlier age and in a more integrated way, teens would move into adulthood much better equipped with the realities of being solely in charge.
Dream wide-open. Picture young children learning mental, physical, spiritual, financial and organizational responsibility at the same time they’re learning to speak, draw, write, spell, add and subtract.
We don’t wait until our children become adults to learn how to add and subtract, yet we somehow think personal responsibility will fall from Heaven when they turn 18 or 21. Really?
